PEACE FREEDOM JUSTICE: 70 years after the Emancipation Proclamation was written into law by Abraham Lincoln, racism, segregation and lynchings still plagued America. Black soldiers returning from the killing fields in France who fought just as hard for their country as their white brethren came home to the haunting specter of inequality.
T’was into this world that Martin Luther King, Jr. was born on January 15th, 1929.
